Cronkhill Open Days 2022

Hidden in the Shropshire countryside, Cronkhill is an unexpected vision of Italy. Take a look around this little gem on one of only six open days a year. All visits must be pre booked and National Trust members must produce their cards on arrival.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Open days are on 1 & 3 July, 9 & 11 September and 14 & 16 October between 11am and 3pm. Tickets for arrival times are available at half hour intervals. You can arrive at any point during your time slot.

Please note, a limited number of rooms are open and we expect a visit to last approximately 45 min.

Built to resemble a stone Tuscan villa, the building was designed by architect John Nash and is the best known example of his Italianate villa designs.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00

 

*Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

Please note...

 Admission to Attingham is free for National Trust members and under 5s. Non-members pay admission fee at the time of booking.
